Planning and implementation of climatic testing
The ITAINNOVA Climatic Laboratory performs climatic testing to assess the type and degree of deterioration that a material, component or product may suffer under extreme thermal or climate conditions.
Common test types
- Temperature and humidity climatic ageing
- Accelerated corrosion in salt spray (accredited by ENAC s/UNE-EN ISO 9227)
- Thermal shock
- Xenon arc lamp light ageing
- Thermal ageing in oven or muffle furnace
- Cyclic tests combining some of the above tests (salt spray, temperature, temperature and humidity, light and others)
- Temperature and humidity chambers with different ranges and dimensions (temperature :-70ºC to +180ºC, RH 5% to 95%)
- Salt spray chambers
- Cyclic corrosion chamber
- Thermal shock chamber (from -80°C to 220°C in 3 seconds)
- Climatic chamber with to xenon light ageing, SUNTEST XXL+
- Walk-in climatic chamber (21,000 litres capacity)
- Muffle furnaces and stoves with different temperature ranges and capacities (up to 400ºC and 1400ºC)
- Inspection equipment (e.g. stands, magnifying glasses, lights and cameras)
- Image analysis software
- Temperature and humidity probes and loggers
